Yeah, several strange things here. I think the long Z values are a toolpath bug, the code has the -10 as specified. I will have to get Brian to look at that.

The funny tool chip loads is something I have seen, but cannot nail down the conditions under which it happens.

I  like the job file for debugging purposes.

Ill work on this one, back later.

I see the material file in the installer is an old one- its missing the %override values, and shifts in some other fields in their place. I saved the gcode and looked at the tool path in mach3 and it looks OK, so Im sure we have a toolpath bug in the wizard.

Ok, I have XP and use firefox, so I have some trouble following your problem. I tried google chrome and it seems to pick its own choice of where to download an exe file. If you just click on it in the browser you cant choose the run as admin option.

You will have to find where google saveed your download. Then using the windows explorer, find that file, right click on it and choose the run as Admin option.

Sorry its so tough, I hate it when browsers make choices for you and hide stuff like this.

Which windows are you running, XP or Win7.

Which browser are you using? All of them I know should give you the choice to Run or Save.

To be following the microsoft rules for a proper application we now install the exe in C:\ProgramFiles\Wizards There seem to be cases when you need to run that as Admin. From the download link choose to save it to disk. Then right click on the file and you shuold get a choice to 'run as' where you can choose Administrator.

Tell me what error message you got trying to install.

The Mach3 version, also called the Addons for Mill that you paid $50 for are good forever, for all new versions. These are the wizards that run under Mach3.

The new Mill Wizards, that are a standalone program will need a new license, the introductory price is $50 the list price in about a month will be $75.

There are other differences. The new license is locked to a PC, you can run it only on one machine. You can run it in demo mode on any PC to create a job file, and view the toolpath, then take that job file to the machine with the license and generate the code. Bug fix versions will not need a new license, but if we come out with a major new version it will need some kind of license upgrade, but that is not fixed yet.

Think of Microsoft- you bought XP, got a couple service packs for no upgrade cost, but if you want Win7 you need to upgrade

Note that Clearance is not an absolute value, but is a distance measure. One example, when doing a multi-pass pocket it moves up the clearance distance above a cut for the rapid move back to the start for the next pass. Also on the start of a cut it moves down from the rapid height to the clearance distance above the Ztop of material.

All the other values are absolute values based on the current coordinate system.

Ok, I see. I am afraid that screen is already badly overcrowded, so Id hate to be adding more buttons to it. I hope to be doing something lie it with the new mach4, and there we have a much larger choice of screen widgets. Maybe that can be worked in there.

Thanks for the feedback
